Bodega Garzón Estate, `Cabernet Franc de Corte` is a vibrant blend of 80% Cabernet Franc, backed up by small quantities of Tannat, Merlot and Marselan. There is an abundance of sweet spice, herbs, and vegetal essences on the nose, while the palate culminates in a velvety texture of subdued berry tones, softened by delicate tannins. It is well-suited for culinary pairings.

Vineyard and Winery
Located 11 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering hillside slopes, which benefit from varying microclimates, different levels of humidity and an intense canopy management. Well-draining granitic soils and cooling Atlantic breezes allow the grapes to ripen steadily. The vineyards are surrounded by lush forests, palm trees, rocky soils and granite boulders.
The hand-harvested grapes were processed separately. After five days of maceration, fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 26-28ºC for one week with twice daily pump overs. The wine then remained in stainless steel tanks for a further three to six months on lees before blending and bottling.
